Filing Instructions and Confirmations
The Instructions and Confirmations subtab contains concise instructions for filing your taxes as well as electronic filing confirmations from the IRS, the Treasury, and the state tax authorities.
- Filing instructions – The final step in the filing process to provide the client with a summary (which we call, “Final Instructions”), outlining the services which were provided, the documents which were prepared, the method by which those documents were delivered to the IRS/Treasury, as well as specific mailing instructions if was not possible for us to e-file on the client’s behalf.
- Confirmations – If possible, TFX will always e-file returns on behalf of the client (once approval is given), but in some cases – such as when filing an amended return or using the Streamlined Procedure – it is not possible for us to do so. If your tax return and/or FBAR was electronically filed, we will upload the e-file confirmation for your records.
- The IRS will provide a receipt when they receive and accept your documents.
- The Treasury will provide a receipt when they receive your documents.
